Art quilt made of cotton and poly/cotton fabrics, yarn, thread, glue, and fabric paint. It was created as part of a series to celebrate the natural hair of people of the African diaspora. In this imagery besides the cylindrical similarities, I chose the bamboo plant for its strength in structure. Much like locked, intertwined hair, the bamboo’s vascular make-up and growth pattern enables it to stay firm and unyielding to the elements.
Art quilts should be displayed out of direct sunlight. They can be box framed or hung directly on the wall using a curtain rod. Dry cleaned only.
